In Memoriam: Professor Sir Eldryd Parry KCMG OBE

18 November, 2022

Dear HIFA colleagues,

I was very sad to learn of the death of Sir Eldryd Parry this week, at the age of 92.

I invite you to read the tribute on the THET website:

Eldryd had been a longstanding supporter of HIFA, and it was always a pleasure and a privilege to connect with him at conferences over the years.

The organisation that he founded in 1988 - THET - has gone from strength to strength to support health workers through health partnerships.

HIFA looks forward to continue working with THET to improve the availability and use of relevant, reliable healthcare information for health workers worldwide.

Best wishes, Neil
